****Upcoming Lecture and Judges Training****
Dell Perry has agreed to give a judges training (Judging Arilbreds in an AIS Show). Judges training is a class with an exam. Judges and aspiring judges are required to attend several of these training sessions each. BUT even if you do not plan to be a judge, but think that you might want to grow and enter Arilbred's at a Show some time, these training sessions give you an opportunity to learn what judges are thinking about when they examine your iris entries. (You can skip the exam if you do not want to judge ;-)
Judges training 3:30 - 6:00
